Code Talkers Lesson 1 Lesson Plan

Subject

We Are Still Here

Description

This lesson plan is meant to expose students to how Native Americans contributed to WWII and how that contribution is remembered today. While this lesson plan looks specifically at Native American code talkers, the more traditional war roles (i.e. soldiers) that Native Americans had are not delved into here. Students are asked to analyze sources from standardized textbooks, a New York Times article, and Native American testimonies. By comparing various sources, this unit demonstrates that Native American code talkers are seldom recognized for their vital contributions to WWII.
